Abstract

In previous papers it has been shown that acousto-optic interaction of arbitrary light and sound fields is solvable by means of Feynman diagrams and path integrals. In this paper we use a quantum-mechanical interpretation of these path integrals, based on probability-amplitude densities, for Monte Carlo simulations on a computer. This simulation is applied to a rectangular sound field (moving grating). Results agree with the well-known solutions for Raman–Nath, Bragg, and near-Bragg diffraction.
